Rainbwo Oreo Poke Cake Trifle from WhatKatiesBaking.com
- 1 box white cake mix, plus ingredients on back of box
- Food coloring of choice
- 1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
- 1 (8 oz) tub Cool Whip, thawed
- About 30 Oreos, lightly chopped
- ½ cup hot fudge sauce
- Rainbow sprinkles
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 13×9 inch pan liberally with cooking spray. Prepare your cake batter according to package directions (or use a homemade version if desired). Evenly distribute the batter among five small bowls.
- Tint each bowl with a different gel food color until you’ve reached your desired shade. Feel free to use whatever colors you want.
- In any order you choose, drop heaping spoonfuls of batter into the pan, layering the colors on top of one another. Don’t swirl the colors; it’ll muddle them! Once all the batter is layered in the pan, bake the cake according to package directions or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool the cake completely.
- Once cooled, poke holes all over the surface of the cake (roughly 25-30) with a wooden spoon handle. Immediately pour a can of sweetened condensed milk over the surface of the cake, trying to fill the holes with the milk.
- Let that cool and then break half of the cake into small pieces and layer that half on the bottom of a trifle jar.
- Spread half of the Cool Whip over the pieces of cake and top evenly with half of the lightly crushed Oreos, half of the fudge sauce, and half sprinkles.
- Repeat steps 5-6.
- Refrigerate the trifle (to set) for about 4 hours to overnight; overnight is best. Store leftovers in the fridge.
